During this time of concern with the
COVID-19 virus, we want to reassure you that we are vigilantly keeping
our office safe. While infection control has become an area of focus
recently, it is something that we at ToothFillers - superKIDs dentistry
have taken very seriously for years.
has been our practice for some time to go above and beyond standard
recommendations regarding infection control. This applies not only to
the implementation of safety measures but in the training and education
of our team. We continuously monitor the
latest guidance from the CDC, American and California Dental
Associations and update our practice as needed.
appreciate your support and understanding for any new safety procedures
we have implemented when you visit our office. If you have any
additional questions, please give us a call or ask us the next time you
are in the office.
Every patient will be asked to thoroughly disinfect their hands before entering the clinical area of our practice.
Fewer chairs in our reception area, helpful signs and one-way traffic in our treatment area make 6’ spacing a practical reality.
The beautiful smiles of our clinical team – dentists, hygienists, and assistants – will be protected behind double-masking at all times.
Even our friendly administrative team will be wearing ASTM Level 3 masks. Don’t worry. They are smiling behind those masks!
We are super clean as we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment and surfaces in each operatory after every patient.
Along with cleaning and sanitizing during the day, we take things to another level at night with a thorough top-to-bottom scrub down.
This is standard procedure at all times, and nothing has changed. Anything that goes near your mouth is heat and pressure cleaned between every use.
Two masks are not enough. Our clinical team will also protect you and themselves through the use of FDA Approved PET face shields.
When appropriate, our team will utilize another layer of protection to minimize the spread or absorption of airborne particles.
Plain and simple, we are not seeing as many patients. We are allocating more time between visits for coming, going and cleaning.
No contact temperature checks and a quick set of questions will ensure our team is ready, willing and able to provide safe dental care – every day.
We truly do love our patients. However, we will save our hearty welcomes and goodbyes for a later date when things are "back to normal".
We enjoy starting every new patient visit by showing off our amazing practice. These tours will have to wait for your next visit.
Minimizing cross-contamination is an important part of our plan. We will ask you to dispose of any outside gloves before you enter.
Whenever possible, we will activate high speed evacuation to minimize aerosol contamination and improve air quality.
In addition to brushing and flossing before your visit, we will provide an Oracare solution to rinse in your mouth for 60 seconds and reduce bacteria.
In an effort to save you time and multiple exposures, we are offering extended appointments. This allows us to do more dentistry in a single visit.
